button exchange

Posted by sarah

When it comes to sewing notions, vintage buttons are my weakness (pretty trims come a close second). They can improve almost any article of buttoned clothing. I have a cropped black blazer that I hardly wore, its pearly 4-hole buttons made it a bit casual looking and it no longer matched well with most pieces in my wardrobe. I still liked its cut and fit too much to let it go, so I decided to replace the 4-holes with the gold-rimmed shank buttons pictured above. Makeover success! The blazer will certainly get more wear now.

These are by no means the best photos, but below are before and after shots to give you a sense of how the style of the blazer has changed after simply replacing the buttons.
